Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush made a cameo appearance at the Emmys Sunday night, and some called it a real knee-slapper.
The former Republican presidential candidate played himself who’s “in between jobs right now,” working an Uber driver, piloting a limo in the introduction to the awards ceremony.
WATCH: “JEB EXCLAMATION POINT!”

For the most part, Bush’s performance earned kudos — not only for his performance but also for his ability to poke fun at himself.

When one person claimed Bush’s performance was humiliating, he was immediately corrected.
@USA_FREEDOM_NOW @GMA @jimmykimmel It’s called “having a sense of humor”. Maybe try it out sometime.

And finally, one eagle-eyed viewer noticed something else in the segment that was significant.
